Mid-Coast Hospital can test for STDs, HIV, pregnancy and injury, as well as do a general wellness check. Hospitals can also, at the survivor’s request, collect forensic evidence to use in filing a police report (also known as a "rape kit"). If a survivor is thinking of having evidence collected, they should try to not shower, go to the bathroom, eat, drink or brush teeth in order to best preserve the evidence. If the survivor feels s/he must change clothes, try to place each article of clothing in an individual paper bag.
